HeÂs a child of post-Independence India who sees all too clearly the dangers of empire  both in the past, in its indelible effect on present-day India; and in the present, in the Bush AdministrationÂs war in Iraq. US news coverage of India seems to focus on outsourcing and economic globalization; Ghosh is headed back to India, and heÂll show us the full postcolonial Indian reality  the political, religious, social, and environmental changes in this country of 1 billion souls.
